resources and previously won by double digit states of president obama's so we're down to the ground game. there's little that these gentlemen can say at this point that can exceed what their ground game has to do. we have a great ground game. we don't even -- our high propensity voters haven't even voted yet and i would disagree with my esteemed colleague and beautiful husband that it wasn't the debate, what happened at the debate was that romney filled the hole that voters wanted to be comfortable voting against barack obama and for mitt romney which is what romney's going to do for the next four years to grow the economy. there's nothing fundamental has changed. this economy is the worst ever, energy prices are not down and people are living the same life they lived four years ago. so that's what this race is about. not the polls. >> look, first of all, president obama won by 7.3 last time so he doesn't have the duplicate what he did in 2008 to win. secondly, there's a way that romney can win without ohio, but it takes a very complicated formula to do that. and you know, i think on the
